Huygens Principle

I am trying to locate a book on Huygens' wavefront principles entitled
"The mathematical theory of Huygens' principle" 1953, London, Oxford University Press (1953) by B.B. Baker and E.T. Copson,

for use in modelling ultrasonic fields.

If anyone knows how I could get hold of this book (I've tried searching my local universities library net service, BIDS, to no avail) or alternatively has any experience in modelling ultrasound pressure fields, especially through layered systems, and can provide me with any other useful material (Not the history of Mr Huygens, please)I would be very appreciative if they could contact me. Thanks

Re: Huygens Principle
Although not specific to Huygens, a good reference is L. Brekhovskikh & O. Godin's 'Acoustics of Layered Media II' which covers such modelling with greater rigor than Huygens.

  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
